The Haitian-born, Canadian-bred electronic musician/DJ Kaytranada released one of our favorite albums of the year with his solo project, 99.9%. The album - also Kaytranada's debut - has received critical acclaim and was awarded the coveted Polaris Music Prize. The record has numerous highlights and one of our favorite singles of the spring/summer, "Glowed Up."

So, obviously it grabbed our attention when he released a mixtape just in time for the autumn breeze (although it's still scorching in Los Angeles). It's a dreamy journey through hip hop, R&B and house with some electronic leggings. The compilation features a bevy of samples from some more recent hip hop releases, while also blending some of Kaytranada's own recent productions. Pree the mixtape below:
One more fun fact: Kaytranada recently posted a picture working alongside Andre 3000, which started a firestorm of rumors and wonderment. The photo has since been deleted from Instagram, but whatever the two are working on, we know it will be worth listening to.
